Last of the Patcham Elms.

 For more photos see this Page.

The timber produced has to be burnt to control spread of disease but at least it is going to be used as fuel in an energy generating plant. It will thus save on non-renewable resources and not add to the net carbon load on our atmosphere.

Hire of this crane is said to cost £2000 per day.

  1. This is very sad, but necessary I suppose. Are they going to plant some new trees to replace them?

  2. Yes, they are to be replaced quite quickly I believe. Apparently two disease- resistant elms are on order. I hope they will be positioned to enhance of the symmetry of the terrace behind (called "The Elms").
